Many trips here but getting waste of time now. How can Walmart. Costco and Jewel have coins for change and Four Winds you have to wait in line at the cashier. As for food Timbers had line all the way around Kankakee grill had over 1 hour wait but VIP players lounge had hot food buffet so we stopped at Longhorn steak on way home...Kankakee grill needs remodel for more room .Big hit coming in 2 months when Hard Rock Casino Hammond opens then you will see some improvement....MAYBE?

Went to a show at their theater--made you wear a mask when you entered but much of the audience dropped theirs afterwards and no one said anything.

I think I saw fewer than 100 people wearing masks in the casino. Considering how many were older, I doubt that was a ood decision. In any event, I will never go there again.

This is one of the nicest casinos in the surrounding NW Indiana and Michigan. The staff is very nice. The casino is always being cleaned by staff. Social distancing is maintained. Masks must be worn at all times. Smoking is not allowed in the casino but it is outside in designated areas.
The buffet is not open due to the coronavirus. The Players Lounge is open for the designated clients. However, I've noticed the quality of the food has gone down. Timbers restaurant is open and the food is very good. The price of the food is a little high because it's at the casino. The other restaurant is closing at the end of October because of the casino opening in Indiana with the same name.
The machines are very tight so winning is problematic.
I do recommend 4Winds Casino for a day or evening out.

Simply put I will not be back unless some changes are made. We enjoy gambling and there is a nice selection of slots. We also like to go to Las Vegas. When Four Winds in New Buffalo opened originally the best part about it was that it was close to home with enough space and freedom to feel like you were on a mini vacation. Like you were getting away without having to get on a plane and fly somewhere. The original hotel was smaller but beautiful. The new hotel is nice. The decor is still beautiful in the casino. The Copper Rock was a great fine dining restaurant and the high limit slot room was fun! People could have a drink, smoke a cigarette or cigar, and gamble in an adult environment. I am sure Covid impacted them like every other business. I am sure this was the main reason for them to start the no smoking policy. However, I am not going to throw thousands of dollars away to be forced to find a remote outdoor smoking area. Plus when I do this it forces me to leave the slot I am playing. Look, I’m an adult. I understand that smoking, drinking, and gambling are all not good habits but I am not going to the health club. I am going for a fun get away. I am not saying that the entire casino needs to put up with smoke, however an indoor smoking section with slots would go a long way. As an adult people can choose what they want to do. There are enough restrictions in everyday life. I know that non-smokers don’t want the second hand smoke but then make separate areas. Bottom line, I will fly to Vegas or goto a different local casino that allows smoking. When I gamble I smoke. It’s part of the fun for me so I won’t be back unless it changes.

The slots are really bad. Played 2$ spins on Buffalo, got a bonus with 23 free spins and got total 8$ bonus. That’s fixed, my wife had similar, played 5$ on a Buffalo slot which was a lot for her and was excited to get a bonus. Got 8 free spins and not a penny back in the bonus. But the pool was wonderful. Continue with your tight odds and no one will come back. We’re going to try Blue Chip next like everyone else seems to recommend.

The Four Winds is a nice atmosphere. But, don't let that fool you! Four Winds, particularly South Bend, is THE TIGHTEST casino I've ever experienced. Payouts are NONEXISTENT! Years ago, it wasn't too bad, but they have changed big time! I would highly recommend you drive another 30 miles west to the Blue Chip in Michigan City. By FAR a better casino in payouts and customer service. If you choose to play at Four Winds South Bend...beware! I warned you!

I’ve been coming to this casino for 4 years and the slot payout has become progressively worse. After the Covid shut down the slot machines are extremely tight requiring anywhere from 50/180 spins before getting a bonus/free spin. When you do finally get the bonus the wins are poor. I played $.75 to $2.80 a spin on various machines and counted an average of 100+ spins before receiving a bonus would win a few dollars. It was not fun and I left feeling angry & cheated. Yes it’s a beautiful place to visit. The Copper Rock is a great place to eat and the hotel rooms are nice and clean but don’t come here and expect to win because you won’t. They don’t disclose they’re payout and never will so don’t bother gaming here.

Whenever you start offering up a Senior Discount on Wednesday's, like before, we may return. I went the week you opened back up, had very few players there and most were of Senior age probably expecting to get a little bit of a price break on food. So all of us were disappointed. It does no good to ask for comp, Four Winds is very tight on giving you anything. They should be pleased that we even bothered to come over and eat and play. Here we come Blue Chip.

Stay away!! What happens at four winds casino would be illegal if they were regulated by the state. Tightest slots around and I have warranted suspicion they are using illegal, covert tactics to tilt the table games even more to their favor. The pit bosses, dealers and even guest services are incompetent, rude and even insulting if you voice a concern or complaint. The are not giving anything back to the community as promised and skip out on taxes that other casinos have to pay. They are greedy and don’t pay their employees as much as they could afford to. Unless giving away your money with extremely low odds to win is your idea of fun, please avoid at all costs!

The buffet and the concert they had there and the pool and hot tub! The staff was very friendly. Expedia didnt tell the hotel we booked a room so the standard room i booked was unavailable so the hotel Four winds upgraded to a suite for same price as standard room. I was very happy!
